This isn't as good as it looks. As Handsome-Ryan said, PVC splinters. In this case, the shards would come out of the front of the bow, into the palm of your hand. PVC is invisible to X-ray imaging, so they would require surgery just to check if there are any in your hand. If you want to make a cheap play bow, use wood or plywood. If you seriously want to practice your archery skills, then either buy a proper bow, or learn how to make your own proper bow.

ok then mr. obvios since you know everything how about you go buy a "proper" bow and shoot yourself in the foot loser

You've been here what, one day?

Little advice: do a bit of checking before you shoot your mouth off and make yourself look even sillier.

Some of us use proper bows on a regular basis.

(Of course, some of us have the sense not to start our first day on a major site by posting insults instead of useful material.)

That was an unnecessary remark. not appreciated. and some people like myself like doing dangerous things, improvising, and trying new things like pvc bows and other pvc weapons.

If you bothered to check who the remark was addressed to, and what it was in reply to, then you would see it was entirely necessary.

You want to make a PVC bow? Feel free, no skin off my nose.

Although it could easily be a lot of skin, tendons, severed blood vessels and nerve damage off your hand when it splinters under tension.

There is tape around where your hand will be resting you know...

So then it splinters further up and lacerates your forearm...

and? i branded myself yesterday, i got over it, if some thing blew up in my hand, I'd get over it, so come on and get a life!!!

I can't help wondering, with an attitude like that, will you have a life this time next year?
